    The years edition of the great rally racing series has 70% rally stages and 30% of mixed events... sounds like a winner to me.

    Just got my pre-load the other day, so just waiting the final days to unlock, judging by many of the web reviews this is going to be a must have title with all the reviews in the 90%+ range

    A few replay clips I made to show off the new game, very impressed with Dirt3 as it improves on Dirt2 in just about every way.

    Just noticed theres a few more DLC packs, the first simply unlocks all the teams and cars for 240 MS points(for people that cant be bothered to earn them in-game) the other is the "Colin McRae Vision charity" pack (160 MS points) which unlocks 1970's Mk2 Escort and liveries with fee going to the charity.

    Awesome game, doesn't look TOO much better than DiRT 2, but that game already looked pretty nice. I think the damage could be, well, more damaging. The crashes don't seem as insane as DiRT 2, as in it seems as though there is less stuff flying off the car and the deformation seems stiffer.

    Most of the graphical improvements are to the weather system, as for the damage... yea the crashes are less forgiving (or more accurate if you will) but you can still occasionally get stupid barrel rolls shortly before bursting the tires, often to see it in the full glory you have to make sure the settings are not just set to visual damage and play on the hardest settings to appreciate the work gone into refining an already near perfect game. As for online play, I notice far too many chickens disable full damage.
